A Rat Model of Ventricular Fibrillation and Resuscitation by Conventional Closed-chest Technique Lorissa Lamoureux1, Jeejabai Radhakrishnan1, Raúl J. Gazmuri1 1Resuscitation Institute, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science This article describes a rat model of electrically-induced ventricular fibrillation and resuscitation by chest compression, ventilation, and delivery of electrical shocks that simulates an episode of sudden cardiac arrest and conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The model enables gathering insights on the pathophysiology of cardiac arrest and exploration of new resuscitation strategies.
